About Kindergarten


Your child may choose one form of celebration from the following three options:
1. Kids may bring in a party favor for all classmates. Examples are a special pencil, stickers, bubbles, a bouncy ball, etc. (Think small goody bag items!)
2. Parents can send in a new or gently used book (wrapped as a gift) and the birthday student gets to open the gift with the class and the item is donated to the classroom. The book will be kept in our classroom library for all the students to enjoy throughout the school year.  In order to commemorate the child’s special day, the item will be labeled with the student’s name and birth date.
3.The birthday child may opt to bring nothing. 

Volunteer Opportunities:
To be present in the classroom, attend field trips, and volunteer at school, the following MUST be completed and on file in the office

  • Safe Environment

  • TB Test

  • Live Scan

Tardiness- please make every effort to have your child at school on time. Attendance is taken within the first 5 minutes of class and the attendance folder is sent to the office. Late Children need to stop at the office to report their attendance before coming to class.

Absences- Please call the office, (925) 284-1640, at 8:00am to report your child’s absence. Tardies and absences are tallied by the office staff and are included on report cards. Sick days are considered excused absences. We encourage you to keep your child home in the event of illness, especially if it is communicable.

Early Release- If you need to pick up your child early, please send a note or email in the morning. The school office will inform me when you arrive at the office to sign your child out. Please do not come into the classroom to pick up your child.

Late Lunches
- School policy is that lunches or other deliveries should be left in the office marked with your child’s name and grade. The office will inform me that a lunch is waiting for a particular student. We eat lunch everyday at 11:45-12:30.

Label Belongings- please write your child’s name on ALL belongings, especially lunch boxes, sweatshirts, and jackets.

School Appearance Code- Students are expected to be in uniform at all times unless otherwise notified. Please refer to St. Perpertua handbook. 

Scholastic Orders-If you are interested in purchasing from Scholastic book orders- you may do so online. I will send the flyers home and you can order online by entering our classroom code. Order online at scholastic.com/bookclubs. Our classroom code is MQM7J
